See the problem here is a government problem. Corporations eventually get into government, that's where the monopolies come from. Eventually you see what's happening in America and Europe where the government is so heavily dependent on campaign money and various other contributions from these entities that they really can't function for the people. This is what we call a bought congress/parliament It's not really through any fault of their own, they are human after all. It was supposed to be up to us 'the people' to remind them they are there to serve us, not so we can serve them. We keep dropping the ball on that one.
Don't get me wrong on this note though.
I am not suggesting that I don't think people should benefit from their work. I only humbly suggest that there may just possibly, be another way.
That being said I've completely lost faith in the monetary system itself. I see examples all the time of how a world could work without it. I mean look at wikipedia, sure it has its' faults but no one really argues it's pretty much our encyclopedia galatica at this point. All those people, all those minds, all that information, all that work; none of them were being paid. Sadly very few people see Wikipedia for the accomplishment it actually is. Not that I would be incredibly worried as governments around the world work tirelessly to pass laws restricting the sharing of information online, in total opposition to what the ...well the people of the world want in this specific instance.
I wish my intellect was sufficient that I could come up with a alternative that would have any viability in reality, it would appear that it is not though.
Don't get me wrong, I consider myself in good company on this.
Since apparently communism, socialism, capitalism, and even theocracy all lead to the same pyramid scheme once they are released on a world that we should just all admit right now is run purely on jealousy, hate, and greed.
...the entire species needs a padded room apparently, jacket optional.
You can not possibly hope to solve a problem while you are in denial about the cause so I do say these things when I see them as true.
Just keep in mind I myself am merely another member of this species in need of a padded room.
